En el mes de febrero mucho de lo que pensamos se centra en corazones rojos, flores, amor y claro, no puede faltar el chocolate. Casí siempre cuando pensamos en el mes del amor y la amistad, se nos viene a la mente esa persona especial que nos hace sentir maripositas en el estómago y hace que el corazón nos palpite más a prisa. Rara vez pensamos sobre nuestro corazón real, el que pompea la sangre a nuestros cuerpos y nos mantiene con vida.

Wow, I thought I needed to be a little mobile to make a living, but apparently not. NASA is allegedly offering $5,000 a month for folks to lie in a bed! They will let you play computer games while you're reclining.

A muggy summer day at a backyard birthday party in Gilroy. Drinks, barbecue, kids in a pool full of inflated toys and rafts.  I shooed a bee away from one youngster as he sat on a diving board, chomping on a hot dog.

It was the marriage of whiplash and deja vu. Hours before Gov. Schwarzenegger debuted the latest version of a hellish state budget proposal, the University of California's governing Board of Regents gave a unanimous thumbs-up for continued planning for a multi-million-dollar Valley medical school headquartered at UC Merced.

I didn't expect a vacation in Monterey -- yelping seals, cavorting otters, lots of good seafood -- would provide a heaping helping of health incidents.

Mold in pricey hotel room showers (OK, it's damp on the coast but ...). Waiter in top-rated restaurant accidentally dangles his tie --- first in the crab, next in the chocolate cake.

Apparently there is a young man in England who has struggled with hiccups, in essence, every 2 seconds for up to 12 hours a day. He estimates that he has hiccuped 10 million times since the episode(s) began. He has heartburn, no sleep for days, problems breathing and now he's on disability because he can no longer participate as a back-up singer in the rock band he was a part of. One night, he did down a pint of coca-cola right before a performance, and they briefly subsided.
